    You can’t use a subjective opinion to bolster another. Heterosexuality is indeed a “choice” even if those who embrace that lifestyle have no idea when that choice was made. Stop asking if someone chose to be straight, the science is in, and much to their dismay, the answer is yes. Which is why it is ludicrous to impose the morality of the civil rights movement on to the plight of the LGBT community who in fact were not born to be gay. As a business owner I have every right to determine what services I will provide and to whom. If everyone is disgusted by my choices they will make a similar choice and refuse me the service of their personal funds. You might have to bake your own rainbow cake, and I may have to accept work at McDonald’s having lost my business to public opinion.

    How do you know that your environment didn’t create a situation in which you were simply more likely to choose heterosexuality versus homosexuality. Your opinion on the matter is subjective and inadmissible.

    Please don’t elevate the cause of the LGBT community and their litany of behavioral choices to the status of discrimination due to skin color. Not the same, no matter the length, volume, or color of the temper tantrum they thrust on society.

    This is exactly the consequence when potentially free people are duped into believing the Government should make everything fair. This isn’t a question of faith in God or an interpretation of the bible for business purposes, this is a question of faith in the free market. If my catering company refuses to help a gay couple celebrate their union, then they can blast their disapproval all over the place via social media. I then run the risk because of my convictions of offending potential customers that I would have otherwise been happy and grateful to serve but who have decided because of their convictions that they no longer desire the brand of service I have to offer. Problem solved, and the government never even received so much as a phone call. After all, wedding services hardly constitute a vital community resource.

    I do support a woman’s right to make her own decisions about her body, such as not having sex at all or using any number of birth control options with varying degrees of certitude, but once a new person is made, the body in question is no longer the woman’s, it is the unborn child’s. Sucks to be her. Sometimes poor decisions lead to consequences we do not cherish. But terminating life should never be an option, period. (Now if the fetus is threatening the mother’s life, that could be considered on a case by case basis)

    Brilliantly put. Truth trumps stupidity yet again. Of course politicians refuse to believe they cannot have their cake and eat it to.

    He is still operating in his career, and is reaching out to former clients from a period while he worked for someone else. Call me cynical, but there are issues with those financially compensated for their “Ministry.”

    Why would the paper be in troubled tweetland for printing the news and not ISIS for making it. This image kind of flies in the face of those who think Jihadist are just freedom fighters against an oppressive US Government. When Christians did not read the scriptures at all we got things like the Spanish Inquisition, Conquistadors, and Ethnic cleansing. As they were able to read their scriptures (Thank you printing press and the KJV from centuries ago, and even just recently for most Catholics, don’t forget) Christians by and large (loonies excepted) pursue peace. As Muslims in the Middle East (and even here) become more deeply entrenched in the practice of their religion we get stuff like this. For those that have read the Koran, is this to be expected?

    According to scripture, they were commanded to do that once, and they never have been again since, “steeped” is hardly an accurate term, and to be honest, if Karma is involved, they have paid enough already. The Jews want peace and to be left alone in their own state, a land that was deeded theirs before Mohammed was ever born, the Muslim nations that surround her have sworn an oath to “Allah” to destroy her and we bend over backwards to shake their left hands. Israel is the only model we can consciously support in the region, period. For us to step aside and allow the destruction of the only official state to ever have occupied its borders (No Muslim state ever existed there throughout history, Palestine was a term given the area, not an official state name.) would be the destruction of advanced civilization in the world, for if a nation is not permitted to live in peace when established by international law, then what country is allowed to live in peace. Oh yeah, Russia apparently doesn’t care much for the rule of anyone else’s law either, and now you can’t even feel safe in an unarmed plane 30,000 feet in the sky.

    I am reluctant to agree but feel I have to, because to put all of his accomplishments as Commander in Chief on paper you would either have to call him insipidly inept or you would have to admit he is being purposefully destructive. No country loving American is as stupid as Barack has appeared to be. If he is indeed smart that leaves only one conclusion, and devout Democrat probably doesn’t cover it.

    All those reasons for not liking Obama sound legitimate but let’s face it, at your heart you are just racist (heavy dose of sarcasm).

    A candidate can be born abroad but only if both parents were citizens. Was Cruz’s dad a naturalized citizen at the time of his birth or later? Groan. It doesn’t matter, we don’t need another senator turned president, their only problem solution skills lie in creating new laws (some out of thin air as proved lately) we need a successful Governor who not only speaks right but has led right and the results prove it. Scott Walker 2016. (There is hope for Cruz’s ambition, Senator Vice-Presidents are certainly an option.)

    Yet another example of Schools feeling the need to become the real parents in a child’s life. They can’t help themselves, they are too important to be censored, and too important to be tested. Teachers and their institutions have been elevated to “all knowing” status in their collective thinking. They have achieved a superiority complex rivaling the Presidents. People drunk with power won’t stop until their drug is taken away. Scary yet predictable behavior.

    A step in the right direction, thank you Australia for the lead.

    She was dumb enough to actually get pregnant, all the while being employed specifically to encourage others to mediate the consequences of unwanted motherhood; which means she was privy to all the “magic tricks” to avoid pregnancy but chose not to employ them, and we are supposed to trust her judgment in making any other decisions let alone one that, without remorse, terminates a life? And then, with smiling pride, as if she has now been self-elevated to hero status, she records her complete idiocy for posterity. What an example for others to follow! Lemming! What parent wouldn’t be beaming?

    Cliven is, on the historical issues he spouted, simple minded. It doesn’t mean all ranchers feel the same way or are just as incapable of complex thought. In this case, a lack of experience equals ignorance. The reality is, racism is not defined by how you feel about African Americans, Jews, Asians, or any other group of people or “race,” racism is a dogged determination to place people into any group at all and then infer common traits, experiences, or expectations, good or bad. It may be that our brains are wired to “profile” but we have a humanitarian and American obligation to learn to see people not as members of any group, but as individuals. Cliven is in my opinion a moron for saying what he did, I can tell what he was trying to say, and for some individuals, his assessment of their plight is spot on correct, but to apply that hypothesis to all individuals classified as members of the “*****” group indicates racism. He thinks in terms of us and they, as all racists do, it is only when we get rid of the “they” that MLK’s dream will materialize.

    Brilliant denial, you just cling to your diploma and continue on flat out ignoring a decade of cooling. But thank you for your service, your prejudiced opinion was achieved honorably.

    You were actually sort of paying attention and I am sort of impressed. Ding, ding, ding, we have a winner. To answer your question, Yes, but with a difference, we acknowledge that our view point is the by-product of faith mixed with tangible evidence and knowledge, and you appear to believe that your conclusions are acquired through the clarity of scientific study and therefore do not require faith, or its inverse function if you will, in order to espouse. That amounts to foolhardy denial.

    We can’t deny that most soldiers were christian and chose to have a cross memorialize their gravesites. Or that the visual depicted isn’t indicitive of the normal experience of those paying honor to fallen compatriots. Not to mention that for many it was their Christianity that gave them the determination to enlist or be drafted and sacrifice their lives for the good of their country.

    If I were an atheist I would perceive this as an illustration of the absurdity of Christian faith. What did his faith do for him? Was it in fact the collective Christianity of our nations leader’s that compelled them to risk the lives of our best in wars that became quagmire’s? I would be content to affix my own meaning and sense of irony, unless of course I was a stupid atheist and was simply looking for an excuse to feel oppressed by the majority.

    If I were a Jihadist Muslim I would see an image that represents my greatest hope for the great evil empire. May all her soldiers fall and be visited by those that remain behind.

    If I were a Jew I would see evidence of the greatest protector nation that ever existed, and the price she has been willing to pay to ensure every people yearning to be free had that opportunity. I would also see my common belief with peaceful Christians around me in the need for a Messiah, even if we don’t agree on whether He has already come or is yet to arrive.

    My point is, taking offense is a verb and the decision made by the offended moron.

    Our family adopted a baby girl from Tonga in the South Pacific. In their hospital they simply smack the mothers if they scream and tell them to be quiet like they are children in church. Our birth mom, according to my wife who was there for the birth, was a champ, and didn’t make a peep. Obviously the product of training. The conditions were deplorable, and the rules were asinine, my wife had to bring toilet paper, bed sheets, towels, couldn’t use the electricity for fan in the 89 degree, full humidity weather, mosquitoes were relentless, and she even had to purchase a trash sack to dispose of the placenta. Practically heartless. Ahh the blessings of socialized medicine. Here we go…
